The accurate information about generation quantities of waste generated is a fundamental prerequisite for the successful implementation of any infectious waste management plan. The objectives of this study were to determine the quantity of generation rate and proportion of hospital infectious waste at Bandung region, Indonesia. The generation and proportion of infectious waste data were collected by using direct sampling method from 7 hospitals, which was completed for three days continuously in hospitals inpatient installation. Afterwards, average generation and proportion were determined in comparison to certain important organizational and functional factors, such as the number of beds, bed coverage, the value of infectious waste management and handling, accreditation status, waste handler status, ownership status, the different of type and the class of hospital. The way that source of infectious wastes, generated from hospitals, vary by functional factors, was also illustrated and the most important influenced factors were identified. Generated infectious hospital wastes vary from 0.22 to 1.26 kg/patient/day. Proportion infectious hospital wastes also vary from 8, 88% to 47, 37%..
